Jobst Gutknecht was a highly successful printer in the city of Nuremburg from 1514 to 1542.

He published the "Achtliederbuch" (the first Lutheran hymnal, with a whole 4 tunes) and many

works by Martin Luther. This font is an accurate "recutting" of the font face Gutknecht used for the

body text in his printed works. It has been extended to over 900 glyphs adding hundreds for modern use. It also presents many ancient things like old ligatures such as "tz", a hedera, and alternate style pilcrow for visual interest. And for those conservative types the modern lower case "k" is also available.

This package includes both TTF, and OTF fonts in regular, and bold with a full character map.

Keywords: renaissance, german, historical.
